Our President's Message


Hello Everyone! 

My name is Chiara Perni and I am absolutely honored to serve as the Panhellenic President this year. I am a third year student from Upstate New York, majoring in Psychology and Italian. I love watching movies, exploring new places, and hanging out with my friends!


I joined the Panhellenic community back in the Fall of 2021 through hybrid formal recruitment. Shortly after, I became the Vice President of Panhellenic for my chapter and served as the Panhellenic delegate on the Panhellenic Council. I met a lot of wonderful women and was so inspired by the work that they are doing that the following fall I decided to apply for the Panhellenic Executive Council. In addition to my current position, I am also serving as the Event Director for my chapter - it is no secret that I love this Greek community and I want to be as involved as possible!


My past experiences have allowed me to meet some of the strongest and most confident women, and I can truly say it is an honor knowing every single one of them. Every member of this community brings something unique and special to the table to create a diverse and inclusive environment. Panhellenic and has shaped and molded by character in ways that I didn't even think possible, and I couldn't be more grateful.


At UC Davis, our council is made up of 7 executive officers and 10 delegates, one from each of our 9 NPC chapters and 1 associate chapter. These officers are responsible for all the duties of Panhellenic such as recruitment, academics, philanthropy, and inter-greek relations. The Panhellenic chapter delegates are then tasked with making decisions that affect the entire Panhellenic community for the better. 


The Panhellenic Community at Davis is truly one of a kind. We have so many exceptional people who come from many different backgrounds in all of our chapters. Our community celebrates everyone's different perspectives, ideas and contributions, not only to their own chapter, but to Panhellenic as well. The Panhellenic Executive Council strives to create a positive, inclusive environment where everyone feels welcome and accepted. We strive to create productive change within our Greek Community. Everything that we as a council do is for the betterment of our entire community. 


If you are thinking about joining a Panhellenic chapter, I strongly encourage you to do so! Not only will you will meet so many people but you will also get to meet so many amazing women, make so many friends, and have countless experiences that you will take with you beyond your years here at UC Davis!
